A longtime member of the Dubois County Assessor’s office and current Deputy Assessor is seeking the democratic nomination for the department’s top position as Angie Giesler has announced her plans to run in the May 2018 primary election.
Giesler has served as the second deputy in the Assessor’s Office since 2007 for current Assessor Gail Gramelspacher who is retiring.
She previously worked in the Dubois County Auditor’s Office for 7 years. Before coming to work for the County, she was employed by German American Bank for 18 years starting as a teller and advancing to the Financial Services Center.
County assessors must meet certain Indiana State certification requirements. Giesler has already fulfilled those requirements by completing all the necessary work to become a Level III Assessor-Appraiser. She continues to receive education to retain that certification.
The Northeast Dubois High School graduate attended Indiana University and lives in Jasper. She is a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, the St. Ann’s Society, Daughters of Isabella, the Association of Indiana County Assessors, International Association of Assessing Officers and the Dubois County Tax Abatement Committee.
Giesler says the Assessor’s Office has very knowledgeable people who work seamlessly together and strive to have the most accurate records, which creates fair and equitable market value assessments for Dubois County.
She says her goal is to continue that process in an efficient and timely manner. She notes in her past work experience, Level III certification, and knowledge of county government are the reasons Giesler feels she would be an excellent choice to serve as the next Dubois County Assessor.
Angie and her husband Jeff have been married for 32 years and have two children.
